    Abstract The Community Development and Knowledge Management for the Satoyama Initiative Programme (COMDEKS) was launched in 2011 as the flagship of the Satoyama Initiative, a global effort to promote sustainable use of natural resources in the landscapes worked in and relied upon by rural communities. These working landscapes and waters—known as socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS)—encompass many uses, from farming and fishing to forestry, and provide an economic and cultural mainstay of village life in developing nations. They also provide a reservoir of critical biodiversity and productive habitat that is key to the large-scale success of conservation efforts. The current publication presents guidance, insights, and case studies from the ten COMDEKS Phase II countries: Bhutan, Cameroon, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Namibia, and Niger. The target landscapes and seascapes in these countries differ markedly, representing a range of ecosystems: river basins in Ecuador and Costa Rica; inland lakes in Niger and Kyrgyzstan; agropastoral systems in Cameroon; mountain ecosystems in Bhutan; coastal seascapes in El Salvador and Indonesia; and grasslands in Mongolia and Namibia. This variety of landscapes emphasizes the flexibility and adaptability of the COMDEKS landscape management approach, and also points up the challenges of landscape-level environmental governance in any ecosystem type.
